Subject: [PATCH] doc: lei-rm: remove unnecessary -F values
Date: Sat, 25 Sep 2021 07:08:38 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

-F is really only useful for distinguishing between mbox
variants and single message/rfc822 files.  URLs and
directory-based formats can be auto-detected easily enough.
